Beynon are our Supplier Of The Week, 14-18 March 2016.
Founded by graphic designer Richard Davies and industrial-design specialist Keinton Butler, Beynon picks up where the modular furniture systems of the 1950s left off – an open, solid and accessible system that’s driven by idealism and built to last.
We caught up with the founders to discover more about this fantastic new brand and why everyone thinks they are ones to watch...
How and why did you decide to launch Beynon?
Beynon was founded with the aim of providing a completely integrated, heirloom-quality, modular furniture system that could be expanded and reconfigured over time. The Beynon range is the result of an exhaustive period of product development in which we explored materials, finishes and production techniques alongside some of the UK’s leading craftsmen. Our first collection perfectly encapsulates our ethos and acts as the foundation for future expansion.
You say you've picked up modular furniture systems where the 1950s left off. What have you taken from the '50s and what have you added?
We've taken the idealism. We want something functional and useful for our client's lives whilst being beautiful and using the latest production techniques. What we've added is a more open and long lasting system. Modular furniture of the 1950's were "closed systems" and had limitations, we want ours to keep expanding with different finishes and elements. Beynon will always be growing and evolving.
